J Bahria Uni Med Dental Coll May ;6(2):127-9.

ABSTRACT: Brenner tumors of ovary are relatively uncommon neoplasms and constitute about 1.4-2.5% of all tumors of ovary. Most of these tumors present as an incidental finding either on gross examination of ovary or as a microscopic finding. They are classified in surface epithelial tumors of ovary. We report here a case of a 50 year old woman who presented to the gynecology and obstetrics department of Jinnah Post Graduate Medical Center, Karachi, Pakistan. The presenting complaints were irregular and heavy per vaginal bleeding for a few months. Total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy was performed and the specimen was received at the department of Pathology, Basic Medical Sciences Institute (BMSI), JPMC, Karachi. The microscopic examination of left ovary revealed benign Brenner tumor composed of well demarcated nests of uniform transitional cells. Keywords: Ovarian neoplasm, Brenner tumor, Transitional cell tumor, Incidental finding
